AOH Syracuse Division: Who We Are/What We Do

On Sunday, April 24th, 2016, the AOH Syracuse Division lead a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising by honoring James K. McGuire, the "boy Mayor" of Syracuse.

McGuire was an active supporter of the Rising through his involvement in Clan-na-Gael, the Irish Republican Brotherhood, and the Irish Republican Army. He was also instrumental in bringing Eamon De Valera to Syracuse in 1919 to raise money for the new Irish Republic. The AOH historical marker outside of Kitty Hoynes Irish Pub & Restaurant shows De Valera and McGuire in Syracuse.

The commemoration started at St. Agnes Cemetery in Syracuse, with a procession to the gravesite of Mayor McGuire and a reading of the Easter Proclamation (i.e., the Irish Declaration of Independence) by Judge Joe Fahey - the Mayor's great-nephew.

WCNY, which is Central New York's member-supported public broadcasting station, recorded the event.
